If you follow me on instagram, you know Ryan and I recently vacationed in Mexico sans kids with our best friends and we felt like we were young again. To say we were rejuvenated would be an understatement. Between the non-stop chaos of having two boys under five and the stress that is moving and remodeling a house, we were so drained. We spent seven days just resting by the pool and taking care of ourselves and it felt SO FREAKING GOOD!
Fast forward to the present; we’re knee deep back in the chaos. Don’t get me wrong, some of me actually missed the chaos and by day five of our vacay, we were craving seeing our babies. By day seven we were antsy and couldn’t even relax anymore. I love my life and I wouldn’t change having my babies if someone gave me a time machine.
HOWEVER, life with little ones gets crazy and you have to find things to make it a little easier. For us, one of those things is making sure to always have a snack on hand when we’re on-the-go; and my favorite snack I feel good about giving my boys are Goldfish crackers. I know there are nay sayer moms out there…moms who think they are full of bad stuff. But I think those people don’t realize this longtime favorite snack is baked with real cheese and have no artificial flavors or preservatives. In fact, all the Goldfish Colors crackers are actually sourced from plants:
- Red Goldfishcrackers are colored using a mix of red beet juice concentrate and paprika extracted from sweet red peppers
- Green Goldfish crackers are colored using watermelon & Huito juice concentrates mixed with extracted Turmeric; Huito is derived from South American fruit
- Yellow Goldfish crackers are colored using extracted Turmeric
- Blue Goldfishcrackers are colored using Huito and Watermelon juice concentrates
By now, you can probably guess that this is a sponsored post, but if you read my blog at all, you know I don’t endorse products unless I truly believe in them. The fact is, I don’t know what I’d do without Goldfish crackers because my kids love them, they’re so easy to grab and I don’t have mom guilt when giving them to my boys!
Life with kids is always busy, especially spring and summer months with sports, school and summer camps; Goldfish crackers save me from the dreaded whiny voice sound of “I’m hungry” when we are running around and busy.
